We discussed last week why Microsoft had decided to ditch the Nokia branding from future smartphones, while the company is also getting rid of the Windows Phone branding. Microsoft is instead changing the smartphone brand to just Windows, a bid to unify the whole Windows ecosystem.

Above is a first image revealing that Windows branding. The image shows the back of British company GoFone?s first ever device to run the platform, clearly showing that the "Phone" branding has now been lost and replaced by "Windows". The move is said to be Microsoft's attempt to unify the Windows ecosystem as the company wants consumers to see Windows as one system across the board, including desktop and mobile.

Microsoft hinted this move last month when it launch the HTC One M8 for Windows (electing not to use the Phone part of the name). Reports suggest that the company will also be unifying the Windows RT and Windows Phone platforms going forward.
